Did she say anything about the crackdown (checkpoints on road, on the street and airports)by INM?
Yes, we compared notes on what we’ve observed going on this year, basically a ramp up in cracking down on various violations of immigration law. Guardia Nacional is being very vigilant conducting traffic stops to filter out the untold thousands of expats here illegally or with illegal vehicles or income sources. “Permanent Tourists” should no longer expect to get a new 180 day FMM with each border run and more attention will be given to FMM’s not closed and stamped out on exit from Mexico. Not that a sudden Sea Change is occurring all at once across the country but it appears to be coming on line gradually since the first of the year.
Looks like a good time to get your Temporal.
Skizzman, I’m curious. Are you allowed a foreign (US) plated moto in Mexico now that you are a PR? Or, do you have a “Mexican” bike? I am under the (mistaken?) impression that a PR cannot possess a foreign plated vehicle in Mexico. Could you shed some light on that por favor?
When I became a Mexican PR a number of years ago I had to get my Canadian plated bike out of the country. Is that still the case? Sorry, I’m out of the loop as my Mexican wife and I have been living in Canada since 2016. TIA for your reply.
Reason I ask is because if I ever want to ride to Central America again I won’t be able to transit my Canadian plated moto through Mexico to Guatemala for example.
Yes, you’re right about no foreign-plated vehicles on a PR. Bought my GS in Culiacán last year and I’m looking to import the KTM. Now with PR my regular border crossings are a cinch. I believe You can surrender your PR to the Secretaría de Gobernación if you want to make such a trip as you described but I’ve not researched this. You can also nullify the PR by entering the country under the status of tourist but, once again, more reading is required
Congratulations on your PR card.
Irene’s son imported my old Triumph with a broker in El Paso. He delivered it to a warehouse in El Paso and a couple of days later he picked it up in Juarez and rode it on to Mexico City. He said there were about 35 bikes being imported with his. (A truck load)
He just got out of the hospital yesterday but when you’re ready for the KTM if you need any information I can get you in touch with him if you like.
Yes, I’d like to contact this broker in a couple of months, or so. No rush.
Thanks for your comments. I wouldn’t want to give up my PR as we will eventually split time between Mexico and Canada. Yes, more research will be required!
I understand. Though I must admit I’d drop my PR in a heartbeat if Justin Kleiter invited me to join a merry band of riders on factory PanAmericans journeying down the entire PanAmerican route. Which Harley should definitely do.
The PR process was incredibly easy for me going through the Austin consulate and a fixer (Sonia Diaz) in San Miguel de Allende. Easy but not cheap.
So no sooner than I confirm carrying copies/pix of important docs is acceptable this story breaks:
I’m really learning to love the rainy season here. So cool and fresh and the humidity drops like a rock after the rain clears. Even got a little pea-sized hail
While it’s better to verify before posting I’ve chosen to just put this out there for y’all
Cartel hit men stopping riders and taking there motorcycles
Will Mexican Motorcycle insurance cover a guy's narco-stolen bike and gear??? How's that work?
You’ll need theft coverage and a police report. Video evidence is likely a big plus. I always carry theft coverage with a major insurer.
Good thing I told you that wouldn’t happen.
I saw the video posted a couple of days ago. I looked everywhere for a news report and couldn’t find one.
A different video from the same take shows the rider who was filming riding away, and the guy beside him was getting back on his bmw as well..... who knows, could be autodefensa taken out of context.
Good find, Animo
In the years I’ve been riding Mexico I’ve only known two such incidents like this where someone lost their bike to thieves.
Looks like it’s time to break out the flip-flops
Just minding my own business walking to the market
Sunday’s jazz concert at Gene Byron plus some walkabout pix
Skizzman, you are blessed that you can relish in these amazing places in your retirement! Thanks for sharing.
